Oscars 2016

 Sketched some dresses from this year's Oscars.
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton. She had such a great year,
I thought she was stunning in Ex-Machina!

Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive (and the best color ever).

Reem Acra Knows Glamour

Reem Acra's Fall/Winter '16 collection was so gorgeous!
Here's an illustration I did of one of her show-stoppers, a dress flowing with silver fringe. 
I found out her collection was inspired by Erté....I could totally see that!

Valentino Couture Fashion Illustration

Cool-down sketch at the end of the work day after
admiring the new Valentine S16 Couture show. 

See the collection here!
"All of this exotic early-20th-century Venetian-pagan romanticism was sewn lightly into the Valentino Haute Couture collection and trailed around by barefoot nymphs with gold metal serpents writhing in their tendriled tresses."

Now that "Goldie & Bear" episodes are airing, I am thrilled to share some of the artwork I have contributed to this show as an assistant designer!

 Every day, I feel extremely humbled and immensely grateful to work with such a talented, inspiring, and tireless design team. Thank you so much to Gideon Kendall, Donia Liechti, John Jagusak, Marina Dominis, and finally, my art director and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Matt Haber!!!
Please keep an eye out for more art coming out by my colleagues---there is a treasure trove of truly breathtaking designs. Thank you for looking, we hope you enjoy Goldie & Bear!

More designs once more episodes air! :) I was usually cast on my favorite things to paint; sparkly/pretty/luminous things!

I also worked on texture call-out sheets, costume color shifts, hue shift options for assets, 3D draw-overs and notes, title card designs, etc.

New Visions and Voices 2015

I had the pleasure of designing another poster for the  NYU Tisch New Visions and Voices film festival!
Last night was my third year attending--in 2013, I was a top finalist and recipient of the animation craft award, and in the past two years, I have attended as the poster designer. 
It's always so refreshing to watch featured films that NYU students are creating!

Coming Up Roses

It was recently my birthday! This bouquet was such a lovely shade,
I thought I should try to preserve the gift in photographs, and got a little carried away.
I really love the artwork by LoveLimzy so I had some fun myself!

(I wanted her arm to interact with the flowers, so...a hint of paper cutting above!)

Marchesa's Aviary Garden

Despite busy work days, seeing the new Marchesa SS16 collection from
NYFW immediately snapped me out of any sign of tiredness, I just had to sketch!
Just look at this dress!
